After a month of technical difficulties, i'm back to blogging, I guess it's been a while since I've last blogged or have had anything worth while saying.
Fact of the matter is since the "break-up" (aka religious life not working out for me) I have not had the energy to sit and blog about anything at all. Yes, I've thrown a few self-pity parties (Megan and Rachel will know exactly what I'm talking about). I have not made much mention of my personal sufferings (and still won't)...but I will tell you a little bit of what's going on before I make commentary on things.
a. I'm working on my teaching credential for math and physics.
b. I'm actually going to get my physics book published after I do a fresh re-write.
c. Yes, I've been going to Mass and making use of the Sacraments, in spite of the difficulty.
d. I ask prayers for my current SD, as he will be moving soon, and I will need to find a new one.
e. I will be teaching Confirmation II at St Joseph's in Pomona, and Confirmation I at St Therese in Alhambra
f. Let me go ahead and answer speculation and say, "no" I'm not entering back into religious life.
Now that I've said the above, let me make some comments on things.
a. I've stopped paying attention to the news, at this point, I really don't care. Zero's destroying the economy, gas prices are crap, and the NFL still is in labor dispute.
b. The world didn't end on the 21st, what part of NO MAN knows the time, and hour, not even the Son, but only the Father in heaven do people not get? It's in the Bible, I swear almost as if people don't read. (Oh wait.....)
c. The Lakers lost, they deserved it for playing like crap and acting arrogantly
d. Long live our Holy Father, he continues to amaze me, God is really at work through him.
e. My desires of being a priest have been effectively destroyed by a high pressure water hose, I have zero intent of going back to Religious Life. (And for those of you about to say, Oh Joe, it wasn't the right order, or go diocesean, let me remind you that I take things deeply and personally regardless of intent, even if I don't show my cards)
f. With e said, there's a few potential Mrs. JT. Keep them in prayer.
g. My Russia trip is being postponed a month due to me having to buy a new mac.
h. Bad Liturgy has been spiritually draining on me since my return home.
i. I'm going to however, be doing podcasts..will tell you my user name and all that later.
I humbly ask that you keep me in prayer...I don't know how often I'll be blogging from this point forward, we'll see.
